The fruits salad was prepared with a uninformed fruits, and don’t forget a special salsa by a Chef Jeffery, therefore it really cold us down for a ‘part 1’ dishes session…

After a brief break, a ‘part 2’ began with 2 spaghetti, seemed on a list quietly…

The beef served in a middle good doneness and a black peppers salsa was separated, that give a choice for those who like a strange beef ambience and those who like with a sauce.

The a bit burn grilled beef was succulent, it could be improved if offer in middle singular with a ambience of beef juice…but this is my personal welfare and it might not suitable for all of us, good arrange by a Chef! You will be warn by a reasonable cost of this steak, find out yourself! 🙂

The Chef did offer some of a internal delicacies on a following after carrying such a good western cuisine, that were a renouned Lemon Tree Special Fried Rice and a Mee Mamak.

As we recalled, a Lemon Tree restaurant held my courtesy few years ago from some of my friends comments on their good and elementary boiled rice, as a boiled rice lover…I was a bit late to try out though never bewail on it!
The boiled rice was incense and yummy, served on a ideal wet turn and never too dry to suffer it! The image of boiled rice served together with a boiled duck wing, ham, cheese, boiled egg and a sauce. It can be a stuffing plate for lunch or dinner.
According to a Chef…the multiple of boiled rice was a advise from a unchanging patron who revisit a grill 3 times a week, a patron requested to has some-more stuffs beside a boiled rice and Chef Jeffery ‘tailored made’ a plate as what he need, surprisingly a plate sell really good from a kitchen…that’s a reason Jeffery named it The Special Fried Rice of Lemon Tree Restaurant!

The Mee Mamak was an extended chronicle from a internal mee goreng where simply accessible in many of a mamak shop. But a Lemon Tree’s chronicle was somewhat different, it surfaced adult with many veggie and boiled to a ideal taste…which meant not too honeyed or salty. It was an eye opening for me to ambience a mee mamak in a western food restaurant.

After all a delicious dish for a dinner, a poetic desserts surfaced…
The special book of Tiramisu and a Chocolate Lava.
I’m not a dessert chairman though a desserts on that dusk ‘seduced’ me too much! Haha!

 print IMG_2465_zps866fbbbb.jpg

The Tiramisu was done in 3 forms of coffee and with a singular cheese cream. The Wow cause was on a initial bite! Not overly honeyed (as peoples are some-more health unwavering nowadays), and it was a warn for me!

 print IMG_2469_zpscff43ab4.jpg

The chocolate lava cake was done from a pristine 70% of dim chocolate, it won’t be overly sweet…no worries! And a so called ‘Lava’ will not ooze from a cake once we cut it due to a high firmness of a chocolate cake.

 print IMG_2472_zps32227da1.jpg

I trust a dual desserts above will simply expostulate a girls crazy! It will turn a favorite for a desserts lover!

We were confident for a dishes served by a grill that evening. Especially with a reasonable prices. The prices for a dishes above are within RM5.50 and RM49.00.

Lemon Tree Restaurant had stretched their dining area to a subsequent door. According to Jeffery, a new wing is support for private duty or catering services, 20-30 persons.

The Chef – Mr Jeffery Bong was a executive cook of one of a 5 stars hotel in Singapore, he motionless to came behind Johor Bahru to start his possess business 11 years ago. He wanted to offer his business with a peculiarity dishes and a reasonable price, in fact…it’s a good news for a western food partner in Johor Bahru. The grill had been by some-more than a decade, and Jeffery continue to yield a best cuisine to his business from day 1 compartment now…

Do dump by a Lemon Tree Restaurant if we are occur in Taman Melodies area, we trust we will find what we like!
